Chennai: “If not for the 7.5 percent seat reservation for government school students brought by the AIADMK government, it is a practical reality that even a single government school student would not have been selected as a medical student this year,” Nam Tamilar Party chief coordinator Seeman said.
In this regard, he issued a statement: “I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear the news of the suicide of my younger sister Laksana Swetha from Tirumullaivayal, Chennai, in frustration of failing the NEET examination. The treacherous action of the Central and Tamil Nadu Governments of India, who are playing with the lives of the students without canceling the NEET examination, is strongly condemned.

Another younger sister from Thiruthani, Jayasuda, who tried to commit suicide after failing in the NEET examination, was hospitalized. My brothers and sisters should give up the idea of giving up their lives for failing in NEET. I rightfully request that the children of the Tamil race, whose genes are filled with fighting spirit and fighting spirit, should never lose courage and courage. As a brother, I advise my brothers and sisters to fight and win life and develop the courage to succeed in their dreams.
The deaths of brothers and sisters who die as a result of NEET exams are not suicides, they are green murders by the central and state governments. The hypocrisy of the central government against the Tamils and the sleight of hand of the Dravidian governments that go along with it have cost the lives of so many people. As a result of the political pressure caused by the loss of her younger sister Anita in 2017, the Tamil Nadu government passed a resolution in the assembly seeking exemption from the NEET exam. The ruling BJP government at the center of India has not approved the resolution till date.
After that, the DMK came to power by convincing the students and parents to do away with the NEET exam, ‘passed another empty resolution and completed its duty as usual by setting up a committee. What is DMK’s secret plan to cancel NEET? What is the action taken on the report given by the Justice AK Rajan Commission on the impact of the NEET exam? What is the DMK government going to answer to the questions? How many more lives is the DMK government waiting to sacrifice?
In order to cancel the NEET exam, the inefficient DMK government started a free ‘NEET’ exam coaching center in the name of sister Anita, but instead of increasing the pass rate of NEET, it has decreased compared to previous years. 80 percent of government school students did not pass this year. Is this the aim of the DMK government’s action to prevent student suicide? It is a practical reality that not even a single government school student would have been selected as a medical student this year if not for the 7.5 percent seat reservation for government school students brought by the AIADMK government.
While Tamil Nadu, which ranks second in terms of education at the central level in India, has been pushed to the 29th position in the NEET exam pass rate this year, states like Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, which lag behind Tamil Nadu in education, have entered the top 10 with a success rate of 70 percent. It has brought to light that irregularities have taken place. All these confirm that NEET exam is designed to destroy the medical dream of rural poor students.
Therefore, I request the government of Tamil Nadu to immediately initiate a legal battle to investigate the NEET revision case pending in the Supreme Court to prevent another life or a student’s medical dream from being lost due to NEET examination. It will not be done, and I insist on behalf of Naam Tamilar Party that the DMK government should not continue with the green betrayal of sitting on the chair above the dispute,” he said in the statement.
